In addition it would have been great to raise the minimum version of guile to 
2.0.10 to eliminate all the conditionals on the availability of srfi-64.

Unfortunately RHEL7/CentOS7 only ships with guile 2.0.9 :(
The same goes for openSUSE Leap 42.3. However support for that release ends 
June 30 2019, so I don't think we have to take that one into account for our 
December/January release.

On the other hand RHEL8 ships with 2.0.14 (and hence CentOS7 will also) so 
it's tempting to drop CentOS7 support...
